Building Funnels with Alexandria Cox
"Alexandria show a little bit more about you and how you get started in this funnel thing. Hi thank you so much for having me. So i am a conversion copywriter and funnel builder and help lady entrepreneurs create launched the first digital money. I ended up getting into business almost on accidents in a way that i would advise most people not to. I felt like i was working at a nine seven manifestation business and i was doing all the things and i was learning everything trying to take. Diy courses and just do it myself and just be that. Self-made solo piano are and then over time. We got to this point. Where i was since i was doing it all and i was learning all that i just started accidentally attracting people who also need that help and then all of a sudden. I woke up one day and i was a funnel builder and creative operator. You know that is a story that is close to my heart. I am so familiar with that one. And i know exactly where you're coming from. I bet a lot of the listeners out. There are kind of in a similar boat for you guys out there to make sure that you stay tuned until the very end of today's episode for our in-flight special tip. I've got a juicy one for you today. Alexandra what is a funnel exactly. Tell us what that is. Because i know a lot of listeners out there are familiar with them but not everybody to explain to us what a funnel is so. There's really like two ways to look at a funnel and the broader scope of it is that it's your business. It's you starting at the beginning. You bring people in from not knowing you bringing them along the awareness journey and bringing them to the point where they become a customer and become an pretty excited about your business to keep buying and buying and buying but the real way that i look at a funnel and the way that a lot of online or funnel is that is that way to get the sale for specific aid. So whether it's an email sequence. That is saying i know you don't know about this. This product all the way to get you on a sales page and by or it's the landing pages that leads you from jumping on a landing page. Seeing the of the words that get them to relate to you understand that they need this product hitting that buy button buying. And that's that's what i bill. That's the main part of my business. I love that. I love the way that you describe that because so often i hear these kind of convoluted and you know what they think about as simplified explanations for funnels and and it's really you know it is. It's that process that you take them through to get them to buy. So i love the way you kinda describe that. What should he coach really have in mind before they begin to look for a funnel expert. They should really be looking at how well they know their own business. A funnel expert that is worth their salt will be able to help. Guide you to get there but a lot of people that get to me in. They realized they didn't know as much as they thought they knew. Or they felt like they kind of throw spaghetti at the wall and get there. And that's one of the things that when you do know that sometimes that's when you get to the final builder and it just makes your business explode versus still going through those waiting sets and so the best thing i can tell anyone before they get to a funnel. Builder is to really do a lot of market research and on a continuous basis. That we really getting to know your ideal human to the point where you can almost speak in their words Had an interesting conversation with a prospect the other day and she said i was in this webinar and i decided to buy click funnels. Now what the heck do i do with it. And i'm like wait a minute. You kind of put the cart before the horse there little bit. You don't buy the system before you know what you're going to do with it know what you're gonna do with it before you buy the system. Would you agree with that. I completely agree with it. But i am so guilty of doing it. Sometimes we will lose. Make such hype about a product that you're like. Oh my gosh. I know i can use this. I'll figure it out and you get so excited and you buy. And i've done it like i've done it multiple times in sometimes. It works out and sometimes it doesn't end just figuring it out is kind of the entrepreneurs if you will but sees how resourceful you'll be but for sure now that i'm like better and business and that i know i will one hundred percent tell someone like no no no. You're not ready for that. Get rid of that. Yeah i think they often don't even know When they do that kind of thing whether it's click funnels or one of these other like fang pools kind of thing objects. They don't always know what a funnel is or what A marketing system is or something like that so they buy it. It's the solution when what they don't understand us. It's actually just part of an overall concept. So are there alternatives to click funnels for building funnels. Are there other ways that you can do it. I mean click funnels. obviously that's a good one But are there other ways to do it too. There are other ways to do it. So you can stick with the funnel builder so before you can use lead pages which is a cheap way of doing it. Almost on the cheaper end of the scale and you can easily pages. So that's great and you can connect a whole bunch of pages together. If you are also going to do it. You could use grew funnels. New one and their marketing. The fact that they are free for lifetime right now you can use f apps or you can do or you can almost bootstrap it and use plug ins on wordpress and that is another great way to do it but again since the way in which you sell is also very much relationships based so if you have a great email lists that came in from either a summit or some other lead magnet you can also do a complete funnel via email in create those relationships without ever having to build a funnel builder. Yeah i so agree. I'm glad you made that point is. I'm always one of those you know. If you don't need to spend a ton of money on a system to get it to do the same thing may be that's not the best investment for you instead. Spend money on the expertise of having somebody help you build something that's gonna be aweso. So how does coaching know that. It's time to hire a funnel expert. They know when they're ready to offer something. That is validated. So i can you bring something. That's not validated. Absolutely because most vulnerable will also be able to help you create an amazing offer or bein tune offer. But if you wanna make the most out of your experience if you haven't offer that's validated to someone has purchased it in give you feedback and you know how to and you know how to roll with. No it will take off. Take those take those. Take those pieces in. Go to funnel builder and they'll be able to take to build out your funnel for it so to validate it. All you would need is to put it on a page or even marketed to your facebook group or to your email is say. Hey i'm building this thing. Are you interested in it. If if people bite then you know you have a viable product. That's when he say. Hey now i want someone else to build it because you wanna to save time. You don't want to spend hours tweaking in figuring out how to get the headliner coloring right have someone else. Who's gonna do it in a day so you can just get back out there making money. Yeah and a lot of times you know we. We don't know what we don't know on our own businesses were too close to it sometimes even if we're good at doing copy or something like that sometimes we're good at doing it for other people and we're not great at doing it narrow businesses so i think a lot of times hiring an expert to do some of those things can be hugely valuable whether you're skilled at it or not. So what it. What does the process look like. So if somebody comes to you and said hey alexandria to help with my funnels. What does that look like so for me. I feel like there is no such thing as a perfect package. I don't like giving someone a packet offer because what you need for. Your business is not what cindy needs for hers so when someone comes to me like hey. This is what i would like to do with my business. We sit down. We have a long top usually do. It's a two hour intensive where we deep dive into your ideal humid not just the ideal human for your business but the ideal human for this product. Because they're not always the same because you might be targeting someone at the beginning of their journey versus someone who's ready to solve a problem right. The
Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand Call for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to Resign
"In regards to sexual harassment story we're dealing with essentially unethical but not illegal behavior. But that's burying of the lead because in this case is vastly more important to be or to talk about the doctoring of official figures that he had nursing home deaths from the justice, part men, officials, New York legislators and, more importantly, the general public. You're listening to Saturday night on the circle. I'm your humble host Ethan Hampshire producer Donnie on the board. Of course, I'm referring to the ongoing scandal of Governor Cuomo. And it appears things are just getting worse. Republicans finally waking up to the fact that they understood up and do something, even though they're not in a position of power in the state of New York in the New York State Assembly On Monday, they announced an impeachment resolution against Governor Cuomo, saying they believe Democratic governor has lost credibility and trust and has an inability. The lead of the state. Of New York. This is amid his sexual harassment allegations which have been levied against him. Investigators are investigations already underway into the handling of his Corona virus pandemic. State Assembly Minority Leader Will bar play announced Republicans won't be able to force the vote or wouldn't be able to force the vote but would keep pounding the issue. They received a quick payoff because Thursday the situation there already changed now. Currently the investigation not far yet far along and focused on that the top members of Cuomo's coronavirus task force, the Albany Times Union, reported, which cited to source with direct knowledge of the matter. Neither Cuomo or administration officials have yet at this point I've been accused of wrongdoing when it comes to either of the matters now. Thursday, Majority of state legislators called for his right Resignation, including Democrats. The Democrats launched an impeachment impeachment investigation, and police in the state capital say they stood ready for an investigate to investigate a groping allegation. At least 100 21, members of the State Assembly and Senate's have said publicly they believe Cuomo should quit office. Now, according to Italia, taken by The Associated Press count includes 65 Democrats and 56 Republicans. Which is an astounded figure, Democrat Assemblywoman Alan Gunther said. All of us are extremely disappointed. I think there's no room in the world right now, for that kind of behavior. He should have known better now, one of the aspects of this story that I think few people have mentioned is that that this is Ah. This is a culture of the Andrew Cuomo administration. This is a news. This isn't a surprise. People who have been associate ID with Andrew Cuomo have been well familiar with this behavior. Now AIDS air, starting to speak about the culture in the office, which required Cuomo to groom and hire attractive young women to be in his employ, which is a clear abuse of the power dynamic when you're specifically seeking that type of situation Mission and setting that type of situation up. It gets better because now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and majority of House Democrats from New York, including representatives Jerry Nadler and exact Alexandria Cossio Cortez joined the chorus on Friday, calling for the governor to resign. Nadler, the powerful chair of the House Judiciary Committee, said that Latino James investigation into the harassment allegations against the governor should Continue, but there's a difference between formal investigations that may end up in charge is any question of confidence in our political leadership of Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of the people of New York and Governor Cuomo must resign and that was coming from Jerry Nadler. So, yes, even Democrats now joining the chorus of calls For Governor Cuomo to resign, and it's amazing how the course of one individual can be completely changed in just a year, because you know, a year ago, this guy was being featured prominently on National News by July, Anthony Fauci said that New York was the model of pandemic response. Hey, want a primetime Emmy and then now the world Is collapsing around Andrew Cuomo. And it's just unfortunate that the central focus is being centered around the sexual harassment allegations and not the nursing home death cover up because as far as anyone is concerned, like I said, the outside of the segment is far as we know. Right now. The sexual harassment allegations are not criminal in nature, they are merely unquestionably unethical. But that is wholly different and magnitude from the nursing home death from the causing of individuals to lose members of their family. Certainly that represents a Maura significant and agree Jin's egregious breach of trust from the New York governor. Pretty interesting stuff. Also representatives an idea of the last quest. Who served in Congress since 1993 said there's only one way that the governor can truly restore accountability in confidence to his office. He must resign. Interesting stuff. You're listening to
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

But yet form a conclusion and then opinion Are, in my opinion, reckless and dangerous. My days in the three term Democratic governor had lost the support of almost his stake entire congressional delegation. None of the defections hurt more than those of New York's two United States. Senators, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. And Senator Kirsten Gillibrand due to the multiple credible sexual harassment and misconduct allegations. It is clear that Governor Cuomo has lost the confidence of his governing partners and the people of New York, the Democratic senators wrote in a joint statement.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki today declined to say where they're buying believes Cuomo should resign, she said.

It's not three. It's not Ford's not fighters. Six women who have come forward is deeply troubling this specific allegation. The governor called an employee it of his someone who he had power over, called them to a private place and then sexually assaulted her. Is absolutely unacceptable. It is disgusting to me, and he can no longer serve as governor. De Blasio and Cuomo have frequently been at odds. Never before has the 63 year old Democratic governor. The son of a New York governor himself been more politically alone. Cuomo today insisted he never touched anyone inappropriately and said again that he's sorry if he ever made anyone uncomfortable. Declined to answer a direct question about whether he's had a consensual romantic relationship with any of the women.

"Continuing part of our conversation. On this issue of. bipartisanship I think people are very confused in this moment because on one hand, it seems clearer and clearer. That There isn't always a good faith negotiating partner on the other side of the aisle when it comes to. So many of these issues, there aren't two sides to them, and yet they are presented as if they have two sides does this mean that there is no such thing as bipartisanship, right? You still hear people talking. The fever will break one day. Our friends on the other side of the aisle will return to us. They'll have an epiphany. You often hear the Democratic nominee talking in these ways and and it sounds to some people just. So it I mean, does that strike you as hollow or what can we do with bipartisanship concept? My view on this right now is we need to hold. People accountable. and. The Republican senators I'll speak to the side of the House that I'm on the Republican Senators have enabled, Donald? Trump. They when Donald Trump says, he just may not follow the results of the election unless he gets elected where have they been? When Donald Trump plays footsie with Russia where have they been when Donald Trump says, he is going to try to overturn the Affordable Care Act, but he has this secret magic health plan. That no one knows what it is. Where have they been when Donald Trump calls people in Richmond who are white supremacists fine people and when he refuses the first presidential debate to to denounce white supremacy where have they been? We don't start this by saying, oh, it's all about bipartisan and you get to do half of what you want. We get to do half of what? No this is about responsibility. You WanNa be a United States senator. You have to be willing to speak up and stand up for the Constitution of the United States for our democracy and for the health and safety not just a handful of people but the health and safety of all Americans. That's where we start and this election November third is going to be about exactly that voters need to hold their senators accountable for what they've done. Yeah I think this is an area where. There's also just a huge generational shift in our politics. bipartisanship. To young people seems like this kind of vintage fantasy. Like themes like people are yearning for this time that I've never lived through. But for young people bipartisanship, got us the Iraq war bipartisanship got us, endless war bi-partisanship. Got Us Bank bailouts and we very rarely see the results of bipartisanship yielding in racial justice yielding in economic justice for working families yielding in improvements to healthcare, and in fact, the things that have yielded those things have been democratic majorities. I hope one day we can get to a point where democracy is much more happened. But. What we are seeing right now is that when the Republican Party is given the keys to any governing body, it will yield an abuse of power fealty to trump or any other authoritarian that would try to assume the highest office of the land and you know I think that. What we really need to examine perhaps, this is common ground on an issue to issue basis. This is not to say that I've never worked a look in my life. There are some areas where we've been able to reach out with more libertarian, our men of the Republican Party there are strong areas, but I don't necessarily think bipartisanship for bipartisanship sake is virtue but just because something's bipartisan doesn't mean that it's good or that it's good for you.

"Away everyone according clear here and I'm joined today by mayor any schauble mayor of the city of Alexandria. Some people may not know that it's the home to one of the county's two courthouses and I believe is one of the oldest cities in the county maybe northern, Kentucky not sure on the the ear, but it's also happens to my hometown. So the special place in my heart. So thank you to marry shovel for brain to chat today and tell us a little bit what's going on in the. EXCITED TO HER Well great while we'll start off with Kevin. Easy question. So what do you think are northern Kentucky's greatest assets. What might you say to someone who's thinking about relocating to Northern Kentucky but specifically Alexandria? A donkey and especially Alexandra is just a big community. You know that from growing up here everybody kind of knows everybody's related to somebody in it's just such a home town small town feel but you're also close to the major you know since the Cincinnati fifteen minutes to the south the you're in the middle of basically God's country with rolling hills, cows, fifteen minutes, North Year, downtown, Cincinnati. So city of Alexandria motto is where the city meets the country. That's that's truly how it is, and so it's it really is the best of both worlds with the cows and major sports teams as far as reds and Bengals, and such like that. Nine that's very well put. It. Didn't I didn't know this city's motto for Awhile. But growing up I would always when I tried to tell people about where I came from especially from other parts a state I always said I'm kind of on the suburban fringe they didn't live in a subdivision, but it's like five Manson, your deep division five minutes deep in the country. So it's really really is kind of straddling the two worlds in Well, I have to say so. So I've been seen a lot of development happening in Alexander's specifically with residential development in I know there's more to be planned as well. How do you anticipate this impacting transportation in the city education workforce all those important things right. We are growing leaps and bounds. We have arcadia subdivision. So over eleven hundred housing units just in that one subdivision by itself that's the size of some some of our cities in Campbell county basically We also have a three other active subdivisions going on, and so we're getting some traffic for sure on that, we're working with the Kentucky State of. Kentucky and sometimes we try and fix one issue. It just creates something else that we didn't anticipate but that we're figuring that out and trying to work hard on that as far as education goes I've been in contact with Dr Rust who's the Superintendent Campbell County schools he assures me they have plenty of space.

"alexandria" Discussed on Way of the Fathers with Mike Aquilina
"The city was named for him and served as the national capital for the dynasty that followed after him the beguiling Cleopatra ruled from Alexandria it was the administrative center of a mighty kingdom. It was an important military position. It was a harbor city. And so it was a hub for trade. When spices and silks made their way from India and China to Rome they usually passed through Alexandria. The Lighthouse in the harbor was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world but just as wondrous was the city's library with its hundreds of thousands of books. It was the largest in history up to that point and it would not be equalled for many centuries to follow Alexandria was in fact the undisputed intellectual center of the world. It was home to that library. It was a research center in science and technology. Alexandria gave us and Ptolemy. It's astronomers search the skies and determined the calendar for nations all over the World Alexandria gave us renowned philosophers such as Filo Platini's poor free a patient and progress. It was only natural that Christianity should reach Alexandria in its first generation. That's city was a standard stop on the route of East West Travel. The city moreover had a very large population of Jews. With many synagogues from the acts of the apostles we know that evangelistic efforts usually began in the synagogues from acts. We also learn of a super apostle who hailed from Alexandria a traveling evangelist named Apollo's. According to Tradition John Mark The Gospel writer and companion of Saint. Peter was the first to lead the Christian Church in Alexandria. We know little else about the first hundred years of development in the church in Egypt some modern historians speculate that the entire region fell under the sway of the NAS nonstick heiress. It does seem that many NAS to cults and sects had their origin in Alexandria. Many nostril teachers came out of Alexandria but unfortunately we cannot know much about the character of Egyptian Christianity. In those years precious little has survived even in terms of passing mention by the fathers who.

"Today her mentor and Political Inspiration has dropped out of the presidential race and her congressional district has been described as the epicenter of the epicenter of the Corona virus a conversation with congresswoman Alexandria or Cossio Cortez of New York plus a preview of a new audio series. From The Times it's Friday April Seventeenth ooh congresswoman. Hello Michael. Hey It's Michael Barbaro how are you? I'm well how are you? Thank you so much for for making time for and for joining this hang out in an interview Are you at home? And I'm at home right now. Well for those who congresswoman no you primarily as a national figure and perhaps less less so by the district represented in New York. I wonder if you can start by describing this moment in your district who your constituents are and how this pandemic is impacting them. Appreciate that question because who? My constituents are largely informs my politics and what we advocate for in terms of national agenda. My community is overwhelmingly working class. It is about half immigrants. It is about seventy five percent people of color were one of the most diverse communities in the world not just in the United States in Jackson Heights alone over. Two hundred languages are spoken. And how is the pandemic impacting? Those constituents in your district out of the top ten. Zip Codes in the United States that are impacted by covert casualties. The top five are in my district. The top yeah the top three being all in our district well in New York City about sixty five percents of all frontline workers are people of Color so the folks who are stocking our grocery stores the folks who are acting as our home health aides that are visiting our elderly parents and the disabled the folks who are working in our hospitals they are the people who are disproportionately impacted. Are you saying that the reason they are getting so sick your constituents because they're disproportionately being asked to go into work in the midst of us? Oh absolutely because this pandemic is not happening in a vacuum it's happening in a social and economic context. And you know there are people that are saying okay. We're going to transition to working from home. But working from home is an enormous privilege and to be able to do your job remotely it cleaves along class lines and the people who need to make the sacrifice. Those are frontline workers. Those frontline workers are often underpaid. They have hourly John's they don't have health insurance or if they do they are underinsured. It's not just about who gets it but it's about who suffers from it the most and what they're telling me is that you know they`re. They're very proud of the work that they do the very proud of the role that they play because they are essential workers but what they don't feel is supported and a lot of the feel like they're just being sent in for slaughter because they are asked to do work without the proper protections. They're saying you're sending us into war without weapons. I was in line at the drugstore a couple days ago and there was this woman behind me and she had A. I believe a kidney condition and she needed to take her medicine golden bathroom and she was out in public in all the stores were closed in the line to the drugstore was so long they would not let her in because there were so many other people that needed medical attention. And we're trying to say. Hey I I have XYZ and you to get my medicine now. Needed confirmed wine. And so this is kind of what we're experiencing while all this is going on we have ice raids that are happening where there's are knocking on people's doors while other people are knocking on the door it's delivered from food pantries so which knocked you answer right right. Ice Doesn't always present themselves as clearly marked as they should and so sometimes these officers are plain clothes. And you know when you have a stranger knocking on your door. I've I've been doing the deliveries myself as well and knock on people's doors and people were extremely scared about who I was and everyone's wearing a face mask so it's it's hard to tell at first you know it's it's extraordinary amount of uncertainty and by the way these are the people who are delivering food. These are the people who are delivering your food to Your Door. Who Don't have healthcare don't have access to testing and are extremely vulnerable so given everything you just described. I WanNa talk about your response to the government's really large stimulus bill. A bill designed to provide relief to struggling workers in particular in this moment. Therefore a Bill. I imagine would benefit a fair number of your constituents perhaps more than in most districts you stood up on the floor of the House and you call that bill shameful and my understanding is that you withheld your support for it so help me understand that. Yeah because You know it wasn't designed to help working people. This bill was not designed to help everyday families. It was designed to engineer one of the largest corporate bailouts and give aways in modern American history and they used the desperation of working families in order to get that done. And so you know when it comes to my district. My district is half imigrants..

Now back to the story before the common era the Royal library. At Alexandria was a thriving intellectual center led by the world's first research institute, the most say on depending on the report the library's collection contained anywhere from forty thousand to seven hundred thousand texts tragically, the library has long since disappeared with the fate of most of the collection remaining, unknown our first theory states that the Royal library at Alexandria was destroyed in forty eight BC e when a Roman generals tactic to burn a fleet of ships, backfired that Roman general was none other than Julius Caesar at that time Caesar was embroiled in the great Roman. Civil war also known as Caesar's civil war. Caesar and his army waged war against Ghanaians Pompey's Magnus or pump pay leader of the Roman Senate in forty eight BC their forces met at the battle of Arsala's in southern Greece. Even though he was outnumbered. Caesar claimed victory. Pompeii fled to Egypt where another civil war was raging. The renowned Cleopatra descendant of Ptolemy the first and ruler of Egypt fought against her brother told me that thirteenth for control of the country. When Pompeii arrived in Egypt Ptolemy, the thirteenth ordered him murdered he hoped Pompey's death would appease Caesar when Caesar arrived at Alexandria Ptolemy. The thirteenth showed him Pompey's severed head instead of joining Ptolemy the thirteenth is was the plan Caesar wept at the sight of Pompeii, his one time ally, and friend he then cited. Cleopatra against Ptolemy the thirteenth and the two forces went to battle Caesar had entrenched himself in the city and fell under the siege of Ptolemy 13ths navy Ptolemy, the thirteen siege of Alexandria went on for months when the gypsies made a move to recapture a fleet of ships that Caesar's army had come endeared Caesar was forced to take drastic measures Caesar informed. His generals to set the ship's aflame thus taking away any advantage Ptolemy that thirteenth may have sought Caesar retreated to the nearby island of Pharos as his generals began lighting the vessels on fire. This plan didn't work out. So well as the flames smothered the ships in tendrils of smoke and ash the fires spun out of control spreading from the vessels to the parts of the city nearest the shore. This included the district where the Royal library is believed to have been located. It is here at the hands of Julius Caesar that the library may have burned the majority of its contents turning to ash, according to Greek biographer Plutarch in his second century c e book parallel lives. Quote, the fire spread from the dockyards and destroyed the great library and quote strengthening the claim was Roman historian Livy who in his twenty eight BC e book the history of Rome wrote that forty thousand scrolls were destroyed in the fires started by Caesar depending on the estimates forty thousand scrolls could have accounted for the entirety of the library's collection or it could have only been a small fraction. Of the total catalog in his nineteen eighty six book, the vanished library Luchino conform posits that it wasn't the library. That was destroyed. But the warehouses nearest the shore that housed an abundance of manuscripts waiting for export conform states that first century BC Greek authors Straub, oh during his stay in Alexandria from twenty five to twenty BC, quote doesn't mention the library simply because it wasn't a separate room or building end quote in Alberta. Manguera nineteen Ninety-six book a history of reading he states that Straub oh, quote described Alexandria. And its most say on in some detail, but never mentioned the library. It must have been attached to the colonnades and common room of the most say on and quote, this may mean the library was not a separate building. But an attachment of the most sale and if the library and most. Gone were indeed housed in the single structure, then straw, bows. Detailed description of the most say on in twenty BC e shows that Julius Caesar may not be to blame after all for the alleged forty eight BC destruction of the library. Our second theory is the Royal library and its annex were destroyed by a Christian decree that outlawed pagan worship by the end of the fourth century. Ce Christianity was thriving. It would soon become the only acceptable religion throughout Egypt in three ninety one see Roman emperor Theodosius the first issued a decree denouncing all pagan symbols and documents by order of Theodosius decree Alexandria's pagan or heathen temples were demolished. This included the temple of Serapis or the Seropyan. See awful is the Coptic. Pope of Alexandria, led the assault on the Sarah PM. He even struck the first blow to the statue of the God. Sarah's after Theophilus is riotous followers were done destroying the Serapeum. He ordered a church be built on the temple site most likely to cleanse the area of its perceived previous sins fourth century, CE historian, unanimous mentions in his Vitale odyssey that the Philis and his followers quote brought destruction on the temple and made war on its contents.

Imagine that the only place that we knew of were coriolanus or a winter's tale while his most famous works hamlet Othello amid summer night's dream had been destroyed long ago. This is what author Carl Sagan posits in his nineteen eighty book cosmos, a personal voyage when discussing the tragic loss of the library at Alexandria. And its vast collection the ancient library at the heart of the AGIP shin city of Alexandria was rumored to have housed anywhere from forty thousand to seven hundred thousand books. These included works from Homer Plato and Socrates nearly all these valuable manuscripts have been lost ever since the library was destroyed thousands of years ago for centuries the mystery surrounding the catastrophic loss of the greatest archive of knowledge. In the ancient world has been a hotly contested debate. Some works were saved. But is it possible?

We're looking into the destruction of the Royal library at Alexandria, which was established in the AGIP shin seaport of Alexandria sometime between two ninety five and two eighty three BC e the library housed texts from all over the world and supported the work of scholars at Alexandria's research institute, the most say on meaning temple of muses, most say on was an ancient world version of a modern day museum. Most of these works in research were lost. When the library was destroyed. And though it's been around two thousand years since the suspected date of the library's destruction. We still don't know for sure how or why it was demolished while many believe most of the texts in the library were likely destroyed. There was some works that survived including the seven known plays of the Greek playwright Sophocles writer of the Oedipus Rex trilogy. The fact that some works survived alive. Bury's downfall gives credit to the theory that more priceless tax from the ancient world might still be out there as you can imagine not knowing for sure how why or even when the library was destroyed makes it difficult to even begin tracking any material at large, but the allure of that loss knowledge has survived through the centuries, inspiring historians and archaeologists to look into the mystery of Alexandria, Sagan ponders, quote, imagine what mysteries about our past could be solved with a library card to the Alexandrian library, and quote, there are four main theories as to when and how the Royal library. At Alexandria was destroyed the first theory states that in forty eight BC a certain famous Roman generals set fire to an Egyptian fleet in Alexandria harbour during a siege of the city the flames spread into the city and consume the library this second theory suggests the live. Gary burn down along with an adjacent pagan temple in three ninety one CE as part of a Christian decree banning all pagan materials, the third theory is that the library was destroyed in six forty see after the Muslim conquest of Alexandria. The Arabs used the heretic books and scrolls from the library as kindling to heat their bath houses, our final theory claims that the library was actually not destroyed in a single incident rather the building gradually fell apart as a result of neglect and constant military bombardment each of these theories could be the truth behind the library's destruction. But more importantly, each one points, two distinct ways that the priceless text within the library could have survived. Our investigation begins with the namesake of the city of Alexandria Alexander. The third of Macedonian that are known as Alexander the great. Zander is best known for his success as a conqueror and military ruler. But he was also deeply invested in the accumulation and spread of knowledge and culture at this period in history. Knowledge was a local concept more concerned with preserving local heritage and traditions, but with the rise of Alexander, the Greeks began to look outward and seek knowledge on a global scale the Greeks had interacted with civilizations in the east in both trade and in war.

"Soft through caesars attempt to appear neutral in the dispute and as a result potent in ordered a kill us and the egyptian army to attack caesar and the roman legion that he had brought with him in an effort to remove caesar and cleopatra by force once and for all leaving ptolemy the 13th as sole ruler with poyton us again as his regent and puppetmaster so here we have the battle for alexandria about to begin pitting caesar cleopatra and the soldiers of rome against ptolemy potent office and the army of egypt now before we dive into the actual battle itself let's just mention a few things here in regards to klia patrick and caesar first cleopatra obviously made the right move by sneaking back into alexandria and choosing to get in front of cesar herself and making her case for being restored to the throne in fact as we have said this play was clear patras only option without caesars backing she most likely would have disappeared into the dust of history so she did the only thing that she could do essentially to regain her throne and her life but potent this was of course right in his estimation that caesar did in fact favor cleopatra over ptolemy and the question that most historians ask here is why evidence suggests that the easier choice four caesar would have been for him to side with ptolemy in the power dynamic as ptolemy the 13th had the backing of the people of alexandria at this time if caesar wanted a stable egypt as he claimed then siding with ptolemy the 13th is the better play.
